Matt Hardy Tells Some Interesting Owen Hart Stories

“One of my favorite Owen stories is the first time he ribbed me, so to say,” Matt Hardy said.

“Like I didn’t know him, we were just extra. This is the fall of 1994, and I’m wrestling Owen in the Stabler Arena in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. So we’re there and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, people really like the Hardy kids.

They take good bumps for all the guys. I really want to highlight you in the match. I have an idea, but I want to make sure you master it, that you’ve got it down.’ He said, ‘Follow me.’ We walk out into the concourse, and he has this big tarp like you’d use to cover up something if it’s going to rain.

A big plastic tarp. “It’s laid out… he said, ‘Alright, let’s just get down on all fours in the center. Let’s pretend like this is the ring. Let’s say I take you down. I want you to take off like you’re trying to get to the ropes, but then I’ll stop you before you get there.

Then you’ll go 90 degrees to your left and you try to get to the ropes there, and I’ll stop you again. Then you go 90 degrees to the left, and we’ll go to all four sides. It’ll really be like you’re resilient, and you’ll look great at this.’ I do it and we crawl, and he says, ‘That was really good.

Let’s do it again.’ I was like, ‘God, this is going to hurt my knees.’ … We do it like four or five times, and then on the fifth time he’s asking me to do it, I go, ‘Dude, are you messing with me?’ He says, ‘Yes!

What took you so long to catch on?!'” Meanwhile, Matt Hardy's brother, Jeff recently spoke about competing in Owen Hart Cup. He then spoke about a story involving Owen Hart and Davey Boy Smith. “Hakushi was riding with Owen and someone else,” Jeff Hardy said.

“They had the heat [up]. It was in the summer and h*t as hell, and they had the heat wide open in the car. And they picked up a hitchhiker, like kind of just messing with him, right? He’s in America now, he’s in a new place.

They picked up a hitchhiker and I forget where it went from there, but I was like, ‘No way you guys were messing with him that much.’”
